A serious injury can also impact a child’s entire life and even affect future career and personal opportunities, so the losses of child injuries can be very high.

If you’re in a side-swipe or rear-end collision in Miami, you may sustain what are known as short-term injuries. These are injuries which may last for a short period of time and you are expected to fully recover.

The trouble with short-term injuries is that they can still be debilitating and can end up lasting longer than expected. A bone fracture, for example, may take longer to heal that expected or an open wound may get infected, delaying a patient’s return to work.

Misdiagnosis after a car crash can lead to complications and can prevent you from getting treatment in a timely fashion, which can lead to permanent injury in some cases.

In Broward County, trucks are essential for commerce. They deliver goods to stores and businesses across the region and make deliveries to customers, too. Moving trucks, tanker trucks headed for construction sites, and large big rigs delivering shipments to stores are on the roads every day.
